3 Quick Tips for Embossing

Hi my name is Alice Boll, a happily married mother of two with over 14 years of scrapbooking experience and I LOVE to scrapbook! In this tutorial video I’m going to share with you my top 3 tips for “How to Know When Embossing is Complete”.

Tip #1.  Allow the tool to heat up before applying it to your project. Be careful, it is VERY HOT!

Tip #2.  Don’t hold the tool in one place for too long, paper can scorch and it WILL! Keep moving it around. Hold the tool approximately 3 inches above your project or as directed in your manufacturer’s directions.

Tip #3.  Check to see that all of the powder has melted, if it hasn’t just re-heat it!

I hope these 3 tips will help you to feel confident about heat embossing on your projects.

If you have questions about this tutorial I will respond to comments left below. 🙂

    You look great on camera Alice ! And I really liked your background details…had to laugh a little at your sign that subtly reminds people to sign up for your email. That’s perfect !

      Thanks for the lovely compliment Debbie! I have the sign in my scrap space all the time for my regular customers and for open houses. I almost took it out of the frame, but luckily my super-smart husband reminded me that I should keep it!!
